CNFS and our lives

	I tried to change the storage method to CNFS since traditional
method had expiring problems. But CNFS don't work.

	I have created a file with command "dd", changed the files
storage.conf, cycbuff.conf, expire.ctl, but the server doesn't seem to
receive feeds and it forwards the mails to the server defined in inn.conf.
I couldn't figure out what has gone wrong. I guess I misunderstood CNFS

PS: I will attach my config files without the command lines, if you would
like to see them. Output of (ctlinnd mode) says server running.			

	(I'm gonna be fired. I can't get this server work :P ..)
